Hi Bilal,

I am new to Jasper Reports but am in need of integrating some reports into my Flex application. I would like to embed the Jasper reports inside my Flex UI. Does the book give any how to's on embedding Jasper reports into web pages or a Flex UI?

The book demonstrates integration of JasperReports into JSP/Web applications, but it does not touch Flex at all, because it is a totally different topic. I guess you can follow either of the following two ways to use JasperReports in Flex applications:

1. Embed Flex within a JSP page. This way you can also include your Jasper report into the JSP page.
2. Do the real work. Transform/Embed the html (and corresponding images) from JasperReports into your MXML.
